Yeph, but mine took less ;) Impressive job, but if you can have 60% of benefits with 10% of effort - this is something to consider. BTW, when i was done with the Ford - it was quieter inside then a new S-Class.

I used "generic dynamat" from
http://www.partsexpress.com/webpage.cfm?webpage_id=3&SO=2&DID=7&CATID=18&ObjectGroup_ID=37&filter=sheet heating it with a heat-gun (damn i got lots of burns) to mold to weird shapes. Then i used a spay from Cascade (http://www.carstereoworld.com/dynamat/dynamain.html) to fill areas that were impossible to reach. I did all the areas i can get to while still leaving a car drivable - i drove without door skins for some time ;) I did trunk, under rear seat, four layers on doors.

To do the doors:
i took the skin off, applied a layer to interior facing part of exterior sheet metal, another layer went to exterior and interior part of steel support and one more layer of spray to door facing part of interior skin, attached is the illustration with red arrows pointing to the sounddeadending material.

Another important part is rear wheel wells (because in Ford they were partially in a passenger compartment)



It's was a cheap solution - but i was saving money for SLK, and i was very satisfied with results.

total side tangent but dampening the slk's doors also make a big difference in the amount of ambient noise in the cab, with the top up of course[:D]
